Heart of Midlothian FC launched the new Umbro home strip and training range for the 17/18 season.
The home shirt sees the reintroduction of the famous running diamond to the kit. First introduced in 1977, it was an iconic staple to Umbro jerseys for decades.
Forty years after its first introduction, the taping returns as a visual statement, now knitted into the body of the shirt using a lightweight jacquard technology removing weight and distraction for the player.
The design is based on a modern reinterpretation of the jersey Umbro designed for the club in 1977, with traditional colour blocking accentuated with a smart collar construction to create a modern day classic. The reverse neck of the shirt features a connection to the famous club mosaic and the motto of the Club Museum – “This is our story, this is our song”.
The collection comes from the new partnership between the famous double diamond football brand and Hearts and comprises a set of bespoke performance garments. This unique collection has been created specially for Hearts and showcases the renowned quality performance and technical designs of Umbro.
For a third season, the Club is proud to sport the name of Save the Children on the jersey.
